rights must be absolute, our laws fair, our national beauty preserved, the powerful must not persecute the weak, and human dignity must be enhanced. we have learned that more is not necessarily better, that even our great nation has its recognized limits, and that we can neither answer all questions nor solve all problems. we cannot afford to do everything, nor can we afford to lack boldness as we meet the future. so, together, in a spirit of individual sacrifice for the common good, we must simply do our best. our nation can be strong abroad only if it is strong at home. and we know that the best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation. to be true to ourselves, we must be true to others. we will not behave in foreign places so as to violate our rules and standards here at home, for we know that the trust which our nation earns is essential to our strength. the world itself is now dominated by a new spirit. peoples more numerous and more politically aware are craving, and now demanding, their place in the sun--not j
. that's the word that we are hearing from law enforcement officials, federal law enforcement officials here in d.c. it is a big change from four years ago because four years ago, there were rising threats. there were also nearly 2 million people descending on the city and there were some real fears about what could happen there is still concern and still been game planning every possible scenario, but is there a different tone to the security this time. a, because you've got much fewer people coming. i mean, maybe 600, 700,000 people coming out here. that's big drop from the 1.8 million we saw. it's allowed them to make some changes. some of the bridges from virginia into the city that were closed to you and me last time so that police and all the buses could use them, those will be open. it will be easier access into the city and they learned a lot from last time. so, the secret service is now on twitter. they are going to be putting out updates to help people get around and get people the information they need. so maybe they don't run into as many security problems as you had last ti
. massacres have taken place in businesses, law practices, malls, movie theaters, and especially schools. these massacres don't seem to stop. they continue on. columbine, virginia tech, aurora, tucson, oak creek. a common thread in these shootings is each gunman used a semiautomatic assault weapon or large capacity ammunition magazine. military-style assault weapons have but one purpose, and in my view, that's a military purpose, to hold at the hip if possible, to spray fire, to be able to kill large numbers. since the last assault weapons ban expired in 2004, and incidentally, in the ten years it was in place, no one took it to court, more than 350 people have been killed with assault weapons. more than 450 have been injured. we should be outraged by how easy it is for perpetrators of these horrific crimes to obtain powerful military-style weapons. >> again, we have been listening to senator dianne feinstein as she goes ahead to introduce the new assault weapons bill of 2013. she was the face of the bill in the 1990s. and that expired in 2004. >> joining me is congresswoman jackie speie

has failed to respond to a terrorist attack appropriately, treated as a law enforcement and diplomatic issue rather than it is the security issue that it is. at its core, this is yet another reflection of president obama's schizophrenic counterterrorism policy. the same administration that unapologetically reins down drone attacks on al qaeda affiliates in pakistan, yemen, will not use other counterterrorism resources to identify, locate and detain the terrorists involved in the death of our ambassador and others in libya. this inconsistent policy may stem from the president's hasty campaign promise to shut down guantanamo bay, gitmo, prematurely transfer detention facilities in iraq and afghanistan. in doing so the president effectively ended america's ability to detain and interrogate terrorists, depriving the f.b.i., the c.i.a. and other agencies of critical opportunities to obtain information on al qaeda networks. today, as the case of benghazi suspect harzi, has demonstrated, the united states is completely reliant on the cooperation of host countries to detain on our behalf and s

president obama, a constitutional law professor and chief justice of the supreme court john roberts should have known like the back of their hands. but the mistake made for an awkward moment in the middle of a solemn occasion. the swearing in of the first african-american president in front of a crowd more than a million strong on the national mall. robe robert's flub was significant enough that the oath had to be taken again. the very next day at the white house. >> i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states. >> reporter: cnn senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin wrote an entire book about this awkward moment in presidential history titled "the oath." did they need to do it, again? >> no one knows. >> really? >> to this day because the legal significance of the oath remains kind of a mystery. so, they just said, look, someone could file a lawsuit, someone could make trouble. we don't want to spend the first week, the first month of the obama presidency litigating whether he is president. so, let's just do it. it's slightly embarrass, it's slightly weird. we'll do
years, it's time to write about hit in the books of law. the job of the president-- and obama has done this magnificently-- to make america feel its greatness, its ideals to arouse our idealism. it's also the job of a president to write it in the books of law, to get actual legislation passed. that's what a nation is governed by and the second term in my mind is going to hinge on what is written in the books of law. >> rose: two things, one is that there's no question that l.b.j. is the most formidable political human figure i've ever met and if we had only known that person that bob caro knows through his research that i was lucky enough to know when i was 24 years old i think the country would have been felt differently there was one moment that he spoke to a bunch of reporters and he was himself and he never did that again. the teleprompter was a girdle on him. to go back to what bob woodward said, we can't forget that the republicans have attacked the democrats and obama even more fiercely than he's attacked them so it's not like he's out there saying these mean things about them.
to citizenship for some of those law abiding -- otherwise law abiding illegal immigrants in this country. so he's looking at sort of this overall comprehensive package, and the president and his advisors feel like they could make some movement on it in the second term. why? well, you look at who supported the president in the 2012 election. he got more than 70% of the hispanic votes. republicans realize that and you're starting to hear sort of this warming up to the idea to do something about immigration, immigration reform. and so, you know, the president had promised in his first campaign that he was going to make movement on this, did not deliver the way that some hispanics had expected him to do. they're hopeful that in his second term that can happen. >> dan lothian you just used the words warming up, and i know that you got the assignment outside of the national cathedral today and it is bitterly, bitterly cold. i want you to tell me a little bit about the warmth and love inside that cathedral. we're looking at more of the live pictures. this is an awesome event. people may forget it's an
